Explore Niseko and all that the Japanese winter has to offer.

let us help you make the most of Niseko
Your stay isn't just skiing and going to sleep. There is so much else to do!
Day trips around Niseko
In addition to our free, 3-minute resort shuttle to Annupuri, we can help you see more resorts of Hokkaido! We can arrange transport or guiding to numerous other local resort gems and provide the right advice to make your trip memorable.
Take a trip to Rusutsu or Kiroro, hike Mt Yotei, tear up the powder at the recently closed Chisenupuri, cat-ski at Niseko Weiss, or Heli-Ski the local hills. There is plenty to do around Niseko - you just need people like us to show you where to go!
Guiding around Niseko
TOURS & Guiding
Niseko Backcountry Lodge has a number of experienced and qualified guides to help make sure that no matter what your ability or desire, you get the most out of your trip to Japan.
And for those up for a bit of adventure, it is possible have a guided hike up the stunning Mt Yotei, an impressive volcano opposite Niseko, which is one of the classic Hokkaido backcountry tours: hundreds of vertical metres of pure powder turns.
local restaurants
Our in-house restaurant Matsuri serves outstanding Izakaya styled Japanese food. We highly recommend it, but your stay in Niseko wouldn't be complete without a visit to some of the other fantastic local restaurants.
The local food options are outstanding, and many provide a free local pick-up service - just ask us to give them a call to arrange it for you. 

Japanese food is not just sushi and rice - you can find something to suit everyone at every restaurant in the area - and if you stay out of Hirafu, it's cheap as well!
Yugokorotei Onsen
The traditional Japanese onsen experience is a highlight of many trips. Relax in natural hot-springs after a long day on the slopes.
The Moiwa area of Niseko is well known for its many onsens. There are many in walking distance of the lodge, with Yugokorotei and the Niseko Grand hotel being our favourites. You'll need to 'nude up' to go in most of them, but that's part of the experience.
